The two Sharks goals both came from Kiana McNinch, who scored early in the first period before the Hounds’ Kendra Zuchotzki tied it, and then got the game winner on the power play in overtime.

The Sharks weren’t so fortunate Sunday afternoon as they fell to the Hounds by a 3-0 score. The Sharks were shut out despite a big third period in which they fired 17 shots at the Hounds’ Eva Filippova, but she got the 29-save shutout.

Next up for the Sharks are games Saturday and Sunday again the Weyburn Richardson Pioneer Gold Wings.
